THE PAGETURNERS BOOK CLUB-ZOOM

Love to read YA books and want to discuss books with fellow readers?  Join us for this virtual program.  This month's book is Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Summary: New York Times bestselling author Meagan Spooner spins a thoroughly thrilling Beauty and the Beast story for the modern age, expertly woven with spellbinding romance, intrigue, and suspense that readers won't soon be able to forget.

Beauty knows the Beast's forest in her bones-and in her blood. After all, her father is the only hunter who's ever come close to discovering its secrets. 
So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters out of their comfortable home among the aristocracy and back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there's no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas...or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman.

But Yeva's father's misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he'd been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. The Beast.
Deaf to her sisters' protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territory-a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical creatures that Yeva's only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin, or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?

Copies of the eBook can be found on Hoopla.

Registration is required.  Once you have registered, you will be emailed a unique link to Zoom where we will discuss the book.  The Zoom meeting will be locked after the program has started, so please arrive on time.

VIRTUAL MOTHER GOOSE ON THE LOOSE (Ages up to 36 months)

Join us Monday mornings on YouTube for movement, reading, rhymes, and songs.  Mother Goose on the Loose is a brain-based program consisting of thirty minutes of fun, skill-building activities.  Some benefits of the programs are the following: aids speech development, improves motor coordination, develops attention span, and encourages a love of books and book illustrations.

We will post the link to the day's YouTube video ten (10) minutes prior to the start time.  You can find archived story times from previous programs, too.
